Getting Set For Boat Fishing

GOOD VIDEO here from Gink and Gasoline with a buddy of our in Florida Capt. Joel Dickey, on a few of the little things about prepping for your cast from the front of a Keys skiff.

But don’t think this is only for the saltwater guys. The same principles in clearing your line and aerialising your line apply to any boat fishing, no matter whether its tossing a hopper out of a White River Jon, a streamer out of a drift boat or a Merkin off the bow of a skiff.

Keeping some line out of the rod tip, and holding the fly by the bend in your non casting hand is also advantageous walking the bank or wade sightfishing. We bumped into Joel in New Orleans in August and got to catch up for the first time in a couple of years he’s good people and built a very good guide business, we’d fish with Joel.

The Gink and Gasoline blog, a collaboration of Georgia guide Kent Klewein and advertising photographer Louis Cahill has some awesome photography and interesting bits and pieces. There is another piece up today of Joel and the Double Haul. One to keep checking.
